Skill has alot more to do with a player making the NHL than developmental time in the AHL.
If Omark gets 20 points in the KHL next season, there will be as much interest in him as there is now?

Not to mention the quickest way to the NHL is likely to sign an NHL contract with a team you could play with next season. Seems like a no brainer to me.
